    Captain Pugwash

    Captain Horatio Pugwash sails the high seas near New Zealand in his ship the Black Pig

    Captain Horatio Pugwash The pompous but likeable captain of the Black Pig. Boasts of being the "bravest buccaneer", but actually quite cowardly and stupid.
    Rarely seen committing any acts of piracy.
    Mr Mate A somewhat dopey character. Has a tendency to use malapropisms and to mispronounce common words.
    Has a teddy bear in his bunk and is quite mild-mannered.
    Does not appear to have any authority over the rest of the crew.
    Pirate Barnabas The most aggressive of the pirates, but in reality just as harmless. He is quite rebellious and grumpy, and is perhaps marginally more intelligent than Willy, the Mate or the Captain.
    Pirate Willy A simple sailor from Wigan. He appears to be the youngest crew member and a gentle soul against using violence. Has the occasional brainwave and has been the crew's saviour.
    Tom Cabin Boy. He is the most intelligent and resourceful member of the crew, the only one who can cook and actually sail a ship. Also an expert concertina player, and part of his repertoire is The Trumpet Hornpipe.
    Cut-Throat Jake Captain of the Flying Dustman. Pugwash's fearsome arch-enemy. He speaks with a stereotypical West Country accent, and is easily recognisable by his eye patch and enormous black beard.
    Jonah Replaced pirate Barnabas
    Governor of Portobello Lives at the top of the island in a mansion covered in vines. Talks very loudly and his head of guard, Lt. Scratchwood, usually acts as a megaphone.
    He is deeply in love with Donna Bonanza and attends to her every need.
    Maggie Lafayette Pirate queen Hijacked the Black Pig to escape from the authorities.
    Swine An Australian pirate who works for Jake. He almost always has a mug of grog in his hand. This character appeared in the original series, but never spoke, nor was he named.
    Stinka A Mexican who works for Jake. Speaks little English and repeats everything that Jake says, annoying him greatly.
    Lieutenant Scratchwood The voice for the governor and the law for the town of Portobello. In charge of the guard and collecting taxes, he also spends his time chasing criminals.

    The Wombling Song

    Underground, overground, wombling free, The Wombles of Wimbledon Common are we. Making good use of the things that we find, Things that the everyday folks leave behind. Uncle Bulgaria, He can remember the days when he wasn't behind The Times, With his map of the world. Pick up the papers and take them to Tobermory! Wombles are organized, work as a team. Wombles are tidy and Wombles are clean. Underground, overground, wombling free, The Wombles of Wimbledon Common are we!
